Is Lymphatic Massage Therapy a cost effective treatment?


Lymphatic massage, also known as lymphatic drainage, is a technique developed in Germany for treatment of lymphedema. Although lymphedema can be present at birth or develop in adulthood, it often occurs when lymph nodes are surgically removed or damaged by radiation for conditions such as cancer. Manual lymphatic drainage is demonstrated to be a safe technique without known side effects. The major concern with incorporating MLD into the treatment of patients with cases of lymphedema, is the cost-benefit. Namely, is the added cost of providing manual lymphatic drainage worth the potentially small improvement in limb volume?

Some practioners, including ourselves, believe that any improvement, even a small one at that, is important, as having a larger volume of swelling for longer durations causes proportionally greater damage.

Call us for a free assessment of your needs for an affordable treatment plan in the Richmond Hill and Concord area only If your health care provider has recommended you pursue lymphatic massage treatment.

Our approach is to incorporate both lymphatic and relaxation massage in your treatment plan for an enjoyable healthy experience.
